Seventy is way past prime for an opera singer. I recall BBC Music magazine once running an article about Luciano Pavarotti, "Is the Party Over?", noting his professional and physical decline. And that was ten years ago. So it made people very happy that he pulled it all together one last time at the Winter Olympics in 2006.
And here he is 11 years earlier singing with... Meat Loaf.
